After a long time without reuniting at their summer home, the Vidal family spends the last vacation together with their grandmother Ángela, who suffers from advanced Alzheimer’s disease. For the first time in her life, Nora (14) feels that she cannot find her place: she finds children’s games ridiculous and adult conversations are still too big for her. But everything changes with the arrival of Libertad (15), the daughter of Rosana, the Colombian woman who takes care of her grandmother. Rebellious and magnetic, Libertad becomes the gateway to a different summer for Nora and the two girls quickly forge an intense and uneven friendship.
She began her career as a screenwriter with ‘S.L. Familia’, for which she won the Special Jury Prize at the 8th edition of the Julio Alejandro Screenplay SGAE Awards. Her second script for a feature film was ‘10,000 Km’ (2014), written in collaboration with Carlos Marqués-Marcet and shortlisted to represent Spain in that year’s Oscar race. Her short film debut, ‘The Goodbye’, won the Golden Spike at the 2015 Valladolid Festival and became finalist at the EFA Awards, as well as bagging the BAFTA Students Award. Since then, she has collaborated with filmmakers such as Jaime Rosales, Paula Ortiz, Isabel Coixet, Mounia Akl, and Antonio Méndez Esparza, among others. ‘Libertad’, her first feature film, premiered in the Critics’ Week at the Cannes Film Festival.
